Eating out in Greece is a way of life and a national pastime with true Greek cuisine being healthy, varied and delicious! There are several different types of restaurant to choose from. There are a good variety of classic restaurants that offer a wide selection of international and Greek cuisine; there are also several international restaurants such as Chinese, Indian, Mexican and some excellent Italian restaurants and pizzerias but if you want to sample the real Greek style of eating out you need to try the traditional 'tavernas' and grill rooms.
Greek tavernas are a class unto their own. Ranging from very basic little places by the sea or up in the mountains with a limited but usually very fresh home cooked menu to huge establishments with large menus, live music and on occasion dancing the general theme is the same. Good food, good company, and a general good time.
